The scheme, designed by architect Chris Medland of One-World Design, includes a 170m-long bridge to connect Imperial Wharf and Chelsea Harbour, where the Queen boarded the royal barge for the diamond jubilee flotilla last year, to Battersea on the south side of the river.

It will be made of three spans with three arches and will be open 24-hours-a-day.
